The Master of Animateuring (Cross-modal performance) forms the second stage of training in animateuring for advanced students, after completion of the Graduate Diploma in Animateuring. The course is based in performing arts.
Animateuring involves the creation of new performances. The course is designed to articulate with the Graduate Diploma in Animateuring (currently operating through Dance and Drama) and is by research with specific prerequisite hurdles.
The course comprises short courses in research methodology, forums for the presentation and review of student research and supports secondments to other institutions, organisations or to relevant projects within the VCA. Students will realise public performance of a significant body of created work, together with a 15,000 word research paper.
